The Carlson School of Management announced the third of its four dean candidates Friday.

Current interim dean of the school Dr. Srilata Zaheer will compete for the job in public interviews on Monday and Tuesday. She holds the Elmer L. Andersen Chair in Global Corporate Social Responsibility and has served as the associate dean for faculty and research.

Zaheer has served as interim dean for Carlson since August after former dean Alison Davis-Blake resigned for the same position at the University of Michigan’s Stephen M. Ross School of Business.

The last of the four finalists is expected to be announced next week.

Zaheer’s public presentation will take place Monday from 3 to 4:15 p.m. in Carlson’s 3M Auditorium.
